Ecuador Beach Property – Montanita


Our last three messages are part of a series on Ecuador beach property.

Today the series continues and shows Ecuador beach property that appeals to surfers.

Yesterday’s message saw how Crucita has the best parasailing in Ecuador.

ecuador-beach-property

Here is a shot I took of a parasailer over Crucita’s coast.

Montanita has the best surfing.

Here is a shot of a surfer at Montanita at www.globalsurfers.com

I have added  a stronger buy signal for Ecuador beach property from Salinas to Esmeraldas and today we’ll focus on Montanita which is south of Manta and marked A on the excerpt of this Ecuador map at http://www.maplandia.com

Ecuador-beach-montanita

Those who have been reading our messages for any length of time know that I have focused my efforts on the middle portion of Ecuador’s beach from Manta to Bahia in the province of Manabi.

You can see why I consider Manta the key to Ecuador beach growth here.

One facet I love about Ecuador beach property is that one can still afford fine detail in construction.

Take for example the round windows in the stair well of the condos I bought in San Clemente.

ecuador-beach-property

Each…

ecuador-beach-crucita

window…

ecuador-beach-crucita

has a hardwood frame with hand carving that…

ecuador-beach-crucita

is unique in each…

ecuador-beach-property

condo.   Every condo has…

ecuador-beach-property

a different carving.

See more on why I like these San Clemente beach condos any why I have invested in here.

However there are many other great Ecuador beach areas I would like to share so I asked a few of the many contacts, up and down the coast, to tell us more about the beaches where they are in Ecuador.

Today we look south of Manta at Montanita … the village on the other end of the long  crescent beach.

Here is a shot taken by Mike Sager, an American who lives in Montanita Ecuador.

Mike shares his thoughts about Montanita Euador below.

Montanita Ecuador  Malibu South…Way South!

By Mike Sager

I am looking down on a stretch of beach that will make any beachcomber smile from ear to ear…eight miles of wonderland just waiting to be explored.   You say “I want to play in those waves though”…gotcha’ covered on that also.  This beach has a gradual sloping sandy bottom that lets you walk out over 100 yards before being up to your chest in water and NO riptide.  Grab your boogie board, surf board or just romp in the waves.

Imagine cruising down Highway 1 and approaching Malibu when a home catches your eye, but the figure $5,000,000 goes through your mind…back to reality.

Now take that same drive on the stretch of beach I mentioned above and you see a similar home on the beach and the reality on this beach is $200,000…not five million dollars.

Life is Good in Ecuador.

This stretch of beach is in Olon, Ecuador.  I call it Malibu Beach because it has miles of beach homes and estates on the sand.

The best thing is that there are NO high rise condos nor will there ever be.  There is a three story building restriction on this beach so you see nothing but beautiful homes and beach cottages (with a mix of fishermen’s homes…that are disappearing slowly).

Okay it’s not quite Highway 1 in California and that’s a GOOD thing.

You don’t have all that traffic nor tons of people on the beaches here.  This place is sort of a hidden paradise.  Oh yeah, people know about it, but in limited numbers.

I grew up in Huntington Beach, California and even back in the sixties you would have to watch where you put your foot while trying to part the crowds in order to get to the waves.

You have NO problem like that here…even on big holiday weekends you can meander the beach and find your own “spot in the sand” without being stepped on, crowding others or fighting to protect your beach towel’s “spot in the sand”.

Come lunchtime we stroll down to Lolita’s Cabana on the beach and dine on the freshest seafood that has ever crossed your palate.  I share with people that if you’re eating seafood here…it was swimming less than 24 hours ago (more like a few hours ago).

Sitting with your feet in the sand, a cold beer in your hand and a huge plate of fresh grilled mahi mahi in front of you will set you back $3.50.  It’s like a scene out of one of those Corona commercials, but this is REAL living in Ecuador.

Catch a little hammock time after lunch (which I have found to be the “Ultimate Stress Relief System”) and then once lunch has settled make for the water.  You can sea kayak, boogie board, surf, swim or just let the waves chase you back to your beach towel…you choose and enjoy.

Here are delegates of our real estate tour near Montantia in a little shack restaurant…

ecuador-beach-property

entrance…

Probably the best part of the day though is when that big orange ball is heading for it’s dunkin’ into the ocean.  The sunsets here are phenomenal and beyond words.  Watching that globe slowly drop into the water is a very soothing and tranquil part of the day.  I have even seen that green flash people talk about a few times as the last little sliver disappears for the day. …Life is Good in Ecuador…come see for yourself.

Montanita Weather

The best weather is from mid December through May here.  Sunny days are the norm and temps between 75 and 85 everyday are waiting for you.  The water is also perfect to be in for hours with NO wet suit.  From the end of May till November you have more overcast days, but actually very little rain.

I grew up in Southern California and it rained more there than here.  Also temps
during the off months is still a pleasant 65 to 75 everyday.  So I share
with people that the “bad weather” is actually not that bad at all.

Remember there are NO severe weather patterns for the coast of Ecuador
(no hurricanes, monsoons, typhoons…and no tsunamis to date).

Montanita Access

The best way to get here is to fly into Guayaquil.  You can be on the
beach in Montanita with a 2 1/2 hour ride from Guayaquil.  If you want to
check out Salinas (what I call “Little Miami without the Crime”), you can
be there in as little as an hour and half.

Montanita Accommodations

When visiting the Montanita/Olon beaches you have a plethora of places to
choose from for lodging.  Those with the hearty “stay up and party all
night” approach can choose from a number of hostals and hosterias in the
heart of Montanita.  There’s the Funky Monkey, Casa Blanca, Tiki Limbo to
name a few.  They start at $8 a night with private bath, but if you are
here on the weekend get ready to ROCK until sun rise in that section of
town.

Just a few blocks away and quieter is Charo’s Hostal.  It is a newly remodeled building with pool, bar, restaurant and sits right on the beach.  It is also home to the “Best Burger in Montanita”…maybe all of Ecuador.  The rates at Charo’s start at $25 a night with clean and comfortable rooms (all the rooms are clean here…just some are noisier than others).

If you wander over to the Olon side of the point then you have less choices, but MUCH more solitude and tranquility.  There is the El Retiro up on the hill top with sweeping views of the Pacific.  They offer 12 various habitations and start at $25 a night.  They also have a pool, zip line (across the tree tops for the adventurous), restaurant and small zoo of local animals including a puma and exotic birds.  You can also find private homes to rent on the beach from $75 and up per night.

Younger crowd.

Montanita Restaurants

When your stomach starts growling you are going to love the choices for
dining in Montanita and Olon.  All of the above mentioned
hostals/hosterias have great restaurants with meals starting at $2.50 and
I mean MEALS…you won’t go away wishing for more to eat (I guarantee
that).

There is Marea’s for some of the best pizza anywhere and Por Que No also serves up a tasty pie if you are in the mood.

One of the things I love about Ecuador is when you order a bottle of beer you can have a frosty 22 ounce bottle of Pilsener brought to you for as little as a
buck!!  (That is almost two 12 ounce bottles in ONE for a BUCK..and it’s
a tasty brew).

If you are on the Olon side of the point then you have to go see Pablo and Lolita at “Lolita’s Cabana” on the beach.  They serve some of the best sea food dishes I have ever eaten.  This little hut directly on the beach is a scene for a Corona commercial or postcard.  You dine with your toes in the sand under little palapa covered tables.

A grilled mahi mahi lunch will cost you $3.00 and a big bowl of shrimp ceviche is only $5.00.  I can attest that the bowl of ceviche you get would cost you more to prepare yourself than they charge.  It is heaped with freshly caught shrimp that melt in your mouth and everyone comments that “this is the best ceviche I have ever eaten”.

Life is Good in Ecuador…come visit us and kick back for awhile.

Montanita Beach View Property


Here is an advertisement for a Montanita Ecuador beach view property. I’ll say more at the end of this advertisement.

This property offers living and investment opportunity available in Montanita  Ecuador,a popular beach tourist destination.

Montanita-ecuador-real-estate

This is a new, large house with stunning views, and two bedroom guest house, located just two minutes walk from the center of Montanita Ecuador.

Montanita is a booming coastal  village with much to see and do and this house has a view of it all. Here is a shot from the balcony.

Montanita-ecuador-real-estate

Montañita is a the main beach town destination in Ecuador. It doesn’t have high-rises, or big concrete building.  It is a ‘funky’ cool place. It has both a special charm, and excellent surfing, which has driven fast development.

Over the last few years it has been discovered and is now THE place to hang out on the coast. Although it’s still small it is a booming beach side retreat attracting both international travelers as well as Ecuadorians.

Pavement culture thrives in Montañita village and the two main roads are lined with outdoor cafes in which to sit, and experience the uniqueness. The food is delicious, and cheap!  You can enjoy a great choice of pancakes and tropical fruit for breakfast and fantastic fresh seafood for the rest of the day.

Montanita is the best surfing location in Ecuador, (world class surfing).

There is scuba diving as well with many dive sites.   Isla Del Plata (silver Isle) called the poor man’s Galapagos has more world class diving.

Montanita is safe with a strong local commune that doesn’t tolerate crime.

This Montantita Property is Special
